I finished the Harry Potter series of books a while ago, and did like it. Lots of folks have mentioned that they stopped reading the series when it seemed as if Harry was whining a lot, but I stuck it out - and I'm glad. There was lots of wrapping up to do for this final installment, but it did come to lots of conclusions. Some were predictable, and others were a total surprise to me. If you stopped along the way, catch up and finish the series.
